Chetwynd to get bioenergy project



The four projects will generate enough power for 70,000 homes annually. The four clean energy projects will produce electricity using sawmill and manufacturing debris, roadside debris, logging slash, sort yard debris and biomass derived from standing timber.

The four selected projects will require capital spending of more than $300 million and will create approximately 1,500 person years of employment.
